SOR/86-304 Section 19 – Hazard Prevention Program
Implementing OSHA’s recommended practices lead to a 52% decrease in workers’ compensation claims. (OSHA)
It also led to an 80% decrease in the cost per claim, (OSHA)
And an 87% decrease in average time lost. (OSHA)
The basic elements include management leadership, employee participation, hazard identification and assessment, hazard prevention and control, education and training, program evaluation and improvement, and coordination for multi-employer worksites.
A safety plan is a written document recognizing all the hazards present on the job and how to control them. It also considers what steps employees should take in the event of an emergency.
The concept of “best practice” or “recommended practice” in safety refers to the most effective ways to maintain employee safety and health. Of course, the ultimate goal of the safety and health program is to prevent employees from getting injured, sick, or killed on the job. OSHA compiled seven categories of recommended practices for companies writing a safety and health program. Each practice aims to mitigate a hazard before it hurts anyone.
